Whale Close In Off Edmonds

A whale is being reported between the Edmonds ferry dock and marina breakwall, according to a woman whose office is nearby.

“He is mostly on his side. He rolls over sometimes and sprays water out his blow hole. He seems pretty bummed,” says Michelle Fleming of Seattle earlier this morning. “My co-worker thinks he’s like 20 feet long. I can see his fins come up and he is moving around right out between the ferry terminal and the pier.”

WDFW Enforcement has received another report of the incident and was trying to contact NOAA.

As of 11:30 a.m., the whale was still in “pretty close in to shore,” but had not beached itself, as this blurb earlier intimated.
